Sync The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order Read & Download ✓ 106 Tist spent six months alone tracking his sleep wake cycle to the home of a Dutch physicist who in 1665 discovered two of his pendulum clocks swinging in perfect time this fascinating book spans disciplines continents and centuries Engagingly written for readers of books such as Chaos and The Elegant Universe Sync is a tour de force of nonfiction writin. Steve Strogatz has gained popularity with his textbook Non linear Dynamics and Chaos I would say that his non academic work Sync The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order is an eually smashing hit Sync explores the idea of how spontaneous synchronization arises in the chaotic turbulent livesnon lives of diverse entities Why do fireflies synchronize their flashing in the dark or how do crickets chirp in unison Why do we wake up at almost our usual time even after an all nighter Why do certain fads gain popularity in the market while some die down uickly Why did the Millennium Bridge start shaking when an unruly group of people stampeded it on inauguration day These are some of the uestions that Steve Strogatz addresses in this book I was really impressed with this book on so many fronts As a computational science enthusiast this book was a special treat for me Strogatz fills the chapters with narratives where computers are used extensively for modeling various phenomena coupled biological oscillators Josephson junctions sync across social networks chaotic synchronizers The idea of a computer model seems almost banal by now but Strogatz s experiments go way back when they were not so common Strogatz s narration style is very gripping and he generates sufficient suspense through his various experiments before giving the reader the thrill of successful result outcomes The applications covered in the book are diverse synchronous flashing of fireflies the alpha rhythm of the brain the circadian body clock planetary and uantum sync communication security sync across the human network to name a few Since the applications and underlying mathematics is diverse Strogatz handles the basics of each topic before he connects it to a sync problem The descriptions are pretty layman even to the point that not a single euation is provided in the book My only complaint is that the book lacks pictures sometimes where they are necessary At some points I felt a diagram would have relieved the burden of description both on the writer and the reader Strogatz hopes in the epilogue of his book that he s given the reader a sense about how thrilling it is to be a scientist I think he has For starters this book straddles across the boundaries of so many fields giving it a heavily interdisciplinary focus For a problem in any application Strogatz recounts many problems in other fields that exhibit the same behavior He then shows how mathematics serves as the means to describe such problems allowing scientists to then feed these problems to computing engines for visualization and assist them in discovering new theoretical avenues Essentially Strogatz demonstrates how scientists often need to see the unity in disparate problems of diverse fields to express them in a common language and cross apply concepts to get solutions Secondly he focuses for a significant part on his own experiments and collaborations in the area of sync He gets the advantage to narrate the story of his simulation crusades impressing on the reader the enjoyment to be gained through pushing unexplored waters And lastly through the fun he stresses the importance of scientific bravery where no fruitful applications are in sight He s scattered sufficient examples through the narration where seemingly fun experiments for the sake of curiosity lead to crucial applications for mankind An Introduction to the Old Testament Prophetic Books unison Why do we wake Kate Douglas up at almost our Snake Charmer usual time even after an all nighter Why do certain fads gain popularity
